On Tuesday night, Billy Corgan took a bunch of Smashing Pumpkins fans on a boat on Lake Michigan, playing them the new Pumpkins album Oceania. He also took the opportunity to go solo-acoustic and debut a song called “Rite Of Spring,” one that he wrote a few years ago but apparently had never played live before. The song sounds pretty good, and the fan-made video is also worth watching to see the glimmering Chicago skyline in the background, marvel at Corgan’s glorious bucket hat, and hear a crowd boo the entire concept of the internet. Watch it below.
